Those who know me well will know that my favourite
colour tone is black. Especially for my shoes and bags. For someone who tends to wear clothing with very crazy loud prints or vibrant colours, it is better for everything else to be black. Nothing but the darkest shade for me really. And then there are sayings in fashion that goes: “you can never go wrong with black”, “when it doubt, go black” or “when you go black you never go back”. I mean so much has been written or said about this particular shade, it’s no wonder then that black is the ultimate chic and cool when it comes to dressing up/down.
Having chanced upon the latest visuals for the Valentino Rockstud Noir collection recently, I just know I had to write about this. The campaign with renowned bad boy photographer Terry Richardson to me is just brilliant! I think it lends a hard edge cool factor to the romanticism of the Valentino brand and relates prefectly to the collection’s darker appeal with the use of Richardson’s heavily tattooed forearm.
Whether is it with the sandals, gloves, ballerina flats, sling back shoes, totes, top handle bag, bracelets, boots, sunglasses, clutch or ipad casing, you know you can always go back to black even if your second name isn’t Winehouse to begin with.
